Pope Benedict XVI on Contemplation
edit_button

Communion and contemplation belong together: a person cannot communicate with another person without knowing him. Love or friendship always carries within it an impulse of reverence, of adoration. Communicating with Christ therefore demands that we gaze on him, allow him to gaze on us, listen to him, get to know him. Adoration is simply the personal aspect of Communion.

(Pope Benedict XVI)

Wonderful words by the Holy Father. How timely that I read this post, as a friend of mine is experiencing an extreme dryness in prayer life so much so that she says she has stopped praying. Please keep her in your prayers.

I will pray for her today, St. Peter's Helper. I'm sorry to hear this.
